- In an unconquerable manner.
1879, George Eliot, Impressions of Theophrastus Such:
- Our rural tracts--where no Babel-chimney scales the heavens--are without mighty objects to fill the soul with the sense of an outer world unconquerably aloof from our efforts.
1917, Various, Punch, or the London Charivari, Vol. 153, Nov. 14, 1917:
- Mr. EDMUND GOSSE contributes a foreword to the present volume, in which he draws a pathetic picture of the author, still unconquerably young, despite his years, facing the future with only one fear, that of the unemployment to which his increasing deafness, and the break-up of the world as it was before the War, seemed to be condemning him.
